Ship of Fools

Haven't you always wanted to hop a cruise liner with a pack of Neo-Cons? Its Republican dating, Bush style! Set sail with The Independent's Johann Hari for a swashbuckling adventure in "Ship of Fools", one of the funniest political pieces I've read in a long time.

A brief excerpt from the first few paragraphs ...
I lie on the beach with Hillary-Ann, a chatty, scatty 35-year-old Californian designer. As she explains the perils of Republican dating, my mind drifts, watching the gentle tide. When I hear her say, " Of course, we need to execute some of these people," I wake up. Who do we need to execute? She runs her fingers through the sand lazily. "A few of these prominent liberals who are trying to demoralise the country," she says. "Just take a couple of these anti-war people off to the gas chamber for treason to show, if you try to bring down America at a time of war, that's what you'll get." She squints at the sun and smiles. " Then things'll change."
They sure will, Hillary-Ann. They will indeed.
